Synopsis

Rike (Susanne Wolff in a powerful tour-de-force) is a stressed-out doctor who wants to spend her much-needed vacation fulfilling her dream of sailing on her own from Gibraltar to Ascension in the middle of the Atlantic. A storm changes everything: she spots a badly damaged, hopelessly overloaded refugee boat nearby. More than a hundred people face drowning. Rike tries to mobilise help, but soon begins to worry that her hope for a humane response by others is mere wishful thinking. Wolfgang Fischer has jumped right into one of today’s most pressing and painful issues and delivers a chamber piece of astounding intensity.
